The Old Fairbridgians Association (OFA) was established in the 1930s to provide aftercare assistance for young people leaving Fairbridge Farm at Pinjarra. Recently, the website of the OFA was re-badged as 'fairbridgekids'. The website has been developed for people who spent some of their childhood or youth at Fairbridge Farm. People are encouraged to 'walk down memory lane' and share their own memories and photos.

The OFA continues to hold events for members and others, and issues a regular newsletter. The fairbridgekids website welcomes enquiries about Fairbridge people, the Fairbridge Village and history.
